TTArtisan has announced their new newest lens for Leica M mount; the TTArtisan M 90mm f/1.25 manual focus full-frame lens. Despite housing a Leica M mount, you’re not limited to just using Leica M mount cameras. This lens can be adapted to every mirrorless system out there through the use of adapters, including Fuji X, Canon RF, Fuji GFX, Nikon Z, Leica L, and Sony E.
Leica has just announced its new APO-Summicron-M 35mm f/2 ASPH lens, coming in at the princely sum of $8,195. I’m never going to complain about the cost of a 70-200/2.8 again. The new manual focus lens is a Leica M mount lens with a 35mm focal length and a maximum aperture of f/2.
This “fast” wide-angle prime features an apochromatic design with ten elements in five groups. Six of those elements are high refractive index elements which Leica says “virtually eliminate chromatic aberrations”. Three aspherical elements also help to reduce spherical aberration and provide edge-to-edge sharpness.
It’s been rumoured, hinted and hoped that IBIS would be coming to the Canon EOS R mirrorless lineup at some point, and now Canon Image Communication Business Operations Group Executive, Yoshiyuki Mizoguchi, has confirmed that IBIS is is something they’re working on for future models in an interview with Amateur Photographer at CP+ 2019.
They’ve also reaffirmed Canon’s decision to not kill off the EOS M mirrorless system or mount. The M mount will be for lightweight APS-C cameras and lenses, while the RF will be for their full frame mirrorless system.
Sony E-mount users, prepare yourselves. Techart has developed a Leica M-mount to Sony E-mount autofocus adapter.[Read More…]
